How to Become a Member


How to Join

  1. Make sure to sign up for our weekly newsletter and follow us on our social media (@osuswe) to stay up to date about all our upcoming events.

  2. While most of our events are free of charge, we highly recommend becoming a Societal SWE member for even more benefits, such as the opportunity to attend conferences and run for an officer position.

  3. We encourage our members to get the Collegiate 2 Career (C2C) membership, which for a one-time $50 payment grants membership for all their undergraduate years and the first year of their professional career.  You can find more details about the different levels of collegiate membership here

  4. The Joint option allows you to join SWE and one of the following three professional organizations for a reduced rate: The American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), or the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE). (Only available April 15 – December 31)

  5. You can join us on Facebook and be invited to our Facebook events. Being in the Facebook group is a great way to keep in touch with other SWE members and stay connected to happenings and opportunities throughout the year.

  6. Come to our monthly meetings! This semester, we will be conducting hybrid meetings (in-person and virtual options available) to ensure that we all remain safe and healthy during this time.

  7. Remember to renew your membership every year even if you have C2C!!
